About us

Company details

Welcome to S. Rocco Seno d'Elvio
Luigi Penna, "Vigioto", born in 1915, bought the vineyards, sourrounding his father's homestead, in 1945 after returning home from a period of military service in Greece. His wines were soon appreciated by a great number of friends.

Quality and attention in cellar

Our Wineyards
We own "31 giornate piemontesi" (approximately 12 hectares) of vineyards on a quaint, bowl shaped hill, in the hamlets Madonna di Como and San Rocco Seno d'Elvio, quite close to the city of Alba.

Production
The classical wines of the "langhe" hills produced by our Winery are: Nebbiolo d'Alba D.O.C. and Barbera d'Alba D.O.C., as well as the hononimous D.O.C. " VIGIOTÖ" and "N'GIOLINA". These two wines are named after "Vigiotö" and his wife "N'giolina" (nicknames in the Piedmontese dialect).

Dolcetto
The Dolcetto d’Alba wine finds its land of adoption on a vineyard which was former property of Mister GALANTE. In his good memory we keep his name for our Dolcetto d'Alba DOC.
